One of the goals of the Vista Grove 5K & Community Festival was to raise awareness and money for the Peachtree Creek Greenway in Vista Grove. Today we were able to donate 100% of the proceeds to the PCG - $600! We made the donation at Fisher Trail Park, which is where the Greenway will enter Vista Grove from underneath I-85 from the Century Center office park in Chamblee.

We look forward to a long partnership with trail initiatives and thank everyone for their participation in the effort! Together WE can do great things!

    10/23/19 Community Information Meeting
    Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 07:00 PM · 8 rsvps

    We are hosting an informational session about Vista Grove Initiative, including discussion of the process of creating a new City of Vista Grove in our area. This will be a one-hour session with Q&A time for those wanting more information, to meet neighbors, and to share input.

    We will also have a guest speaker, Greg Ramsey, who will talk about an exciting new real estate development in our midst - the Pendergrast Farm Development  - a one of a kind Farm Conservation Community helping to preserve one of the last farmland remnants on Briarcliff Rd. As a Conservation Community it will preserve 70% of the site including 5 acres of woodland and a 1 acre urban farm that will offer farm fresh produce to the homes. It is setting the first precedent for conservation community development in DeKalb County. This is a great opportunity for anyone from the neighborhood interested in staying in the neighborhood while downsizing to a supportive, farm focused community with a common house for diners and activities and a pool. They are looking for empty nesters, retirees and families that want the feeling of "rural living in the city" and are looking for a sense of community.

    When:  Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 7 pm

    Where: The Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation - Ballroom at the Carlos Center 

                This is on the lower level of the large building on the northern side of the property - where you drive through for the food pickup at the Greek Festival.

    Please RSVP below so we will have enough chairs set up!

    At this information session, we will discuss some of these areas:

    • Feasibility
    • Tax concerns
    • The legislative process

    Vista Grove includes the Lakeside High School footprint and connected community - a working map is available here:  http://www.vistagrove.org/new_maps

    Feel free to forward this information to anyone you know who may be interested in hearing about the possibility of cityhood for our Vista Grove community. We look forward to continuing to foster positive dialogue about community projects and gathering additional input on the community improvements we would most like to see.

    Please email info@vistagrove.org with any questions.

    We hope to see you at this or another neighborhood meeting soon!
